Profitable treatment is done more and more

Recently, many treatment systems, treatments, and injection materials have emerged, including laser treatment equipment, and we are entering the age of mixing beauty treatments.

When I started working as a cosmetic surgeon, the carbon dioxide laser was the only therapeutic laser irradiation system.

I was thrilled to see a CO2 laser irradiator for the first time 18 years ago. The meat can be cut instantly and a hole is easily opened in the business card.

This is amazing. It was like a laser gun, a cutting-edge weapon for space warfare.

When I was a kid, I was impressed by the longing laser gun. However, I immediately realized that the treatment range was narrow and unusable. The first carbon dioxide laser was bigger than necessary, and it was necessary to set carbon dioxide in a large tank. The only purpose of treatment is incision and removal of moles. I was impressed that I couldn't use it for an expensive price, because I had introduced it with great expectations. In fact, it was rarely used for treatment. Around this time, clinics specializing in men were opened one after another in the boom of uncut surgery. We have increased patient acquisition by selling laser surgery.

However, it was actually obscene.

The scar is ugly and healed badly. In contrast to a scalpel incision healed with a much cleaner scar.

It seems that the name Laser has given a magical image to patients.

Nowadays there are few clinics that employ a nonsense method of performing uncut surgery using a laser. Photo RF, Polaris, ThermaCool, Fraxel, Smart Lipo, Thread Lift ... New systems and new treatments have come out one after another.

Immediately after graduating from medical school, a doctor who has just started operating these systems and treatments suddenly starts treatment. Like a charismatic doctor with the latest equipment. Not to mention the result. Long-term prognosis is important for any treatment. Even if the place is good, it should not be a treatment that will cause problems in the future. It takes time, knowledge and experience to acquire new treatment techniques.

Why isn't the treatment from the patient to the teacher? It is often asked. Isn't it possible to do ○○ too? You will be asked. Of course, I can't do it if I don't have experience or have insufficient skills and knowledge. Until the treatment is recognized to some extent in Japan and the side effects and prognosis are clear, it will not jump immediately. If you think about profits in medicine, you will win first. Is the medical institution or cosmetic surgeon who is treating anything better?

Medical services are not discount stores or department stores.

It is necessary to provide treatment tailored to the individual patient and care for it afterwards. Are there really doctors who can perfect any surgery? I'm wondering what percentage of cosmetic surgeons have the ability to deal with any kind of trouble.

I hope that there is no doctor who can provide medical care to patients with half-finished knowledge and skills.
